Watch 32 discordant metronomes achieve synchrony in minutes


The math and physics surrounding coupled oscillators are actually relevant to a variety of scientific phenomena, including the transfer of sound and thermal conductivity. For a much more detailed explanation of how this works, and how to try it for yourself, check out this excellent video by condensed matter physicist Adam Milcovich...

That's crazy and, for reasons I don't understand, somewhat frightening.

Brilliant! Great physics demonstration. Now where can I get a whole load of metronomes

If you watch the table closely, it has a wobble, It's probably something to do with that. I would like to see the same experiment with the metronomes on a block of granite.

That was my conclusion also. It sounded like a symbolic representation of the new age dawning upon us. From chaos to lock-step.

Oh.... You're right. Mabey the phenomena is still possible on solid granite or Iron for that matter but the metronomes run out of energy before it's happens.

Or maybe, hopefully, it's a sham. I'm going to dream about being chased by marching metronomes now.

put a battery operated quarts clock on a wall near your computer . The internal computer clock will sync with the wall clock. It takes a few hours for them to sync.

Yes the board moves...

The metronomes in this video fall into the latter camp. Energy from the motion of one ticking metronome can affect the motion of every metronome around it, while the motion of every other metronome affects the motion of our original metronome right back. All this inter-metranome "communication" is facilitated by the board, which serves as an energetc intermediary between all the metronomes that rest upon its surface. The metronomes in this video (which are really just pendulums, or, if you want to get really technical, oscillators) are said to be "coupled."
